thank you to the other nominees. all these performances were impeccable, in my opinion. i didn't see a false note anywhere. i would like to thank jean-marc valet. i want to thank jared leto and jennifer garner, who i worked with daily. a few things, about three things to my account, that i need each day. one of them is something to look up to. another is something to look forward to. and another is someone to chase. now, first off, i want to thank god because that's who i look up to. he has graced my life with opportunities that i know are not of my hand or any other human hand. he has shown me that it's a scientific fact, that gratitude reciprocates. in the words of the late charlie lawton, who said, when you got
god, you got a friend. and that friend is you. to my family, that's who and what i look forward to. to my father. i know he's up there right now, with a big pot of gumbo. he's got a lemon meringue pie. and he's probably up there with a cold can of miller lite. he's dancing right there. you, daddy, taught me what it means to be a man. to my mother, who is here tonight. who taught me and my two brothers, demanded that we respect ourselves. and what we, in turn, learned, that we were better able to respect others. thanks for that, momma. to my wife, camilla, and my kids, levy, mr. stone, the courage and significance you give me every day i go out the door is unparalleled. you are the four people in my life that i want to make the most proud of me. thank you. and to my hero. that's who i chased.
i was 15 years old, i had a very important person in my life come to me and say, who is your hero. give me a couple weeks. i come back two weeks later. i said, i thought about it. and i said, it's me in ten years. i turned 25 ten years later. and that person comes up to me and says, are you a hero? not even close. she said, why? i said, because my hero's me at 35. so, every day, every week, every month and every year of my life, my hero's always ten years away. i'm never going to be my hero. i'm not going to attain that. i know i'm not. and that's just fine with me because that keeps me with somebody to keep on chasing. so, if any of us, whatever those things are, whatever it is we look up to, whatever it is we look forward to and whoever it is we're chasing, for that, i say amen. to that, i say, all right, all right, all right.
